Join Nancie King Mertz, Master Pastelist, at the Palette and Chisel Art Academy for a plein air workshop to capture urban street scenes, nearby cafes and Washington Square Park in the beautiful residential area of the Gold Coast. In this 3-day workshop, students will have a better understanding of composition, basic perspective, underpaintings and light and shadow to bring out their own unique style. Nancie will share her rapid plein air techniques to complete works in 2-3 hours.

If weather becomes an issue, students can be inspired to paint indoors at the Palette and Chisel Art Academy, a beautifully, restored 1870’s mansion encompassing an idyllic interior, as well as a model in-studio. http://www.paletteandchisel.org/
